How much do electric scooters cost? Well. Unfortunately, the answer is not clear, because the prices for electric mobility can vary widely. As does the quality.

Buying electric scooters: The most important must-knows

You have found your favorite color and can buy your electric scooter cheap from unu? Yeah! We are happy for you. Now you have to take care of administrative things like registration and insurance. We have the most important must-knows. 
Subsidy programs and electric scooter subsidy Perhaps the best news is that if you want to buy an electric scooter, some states and cities are happy to offer subsidies - thanks to special e-mobility support programs. So emission-free cruising is rewarded. These subsidies usually come from the federal government, states, municipalities, public utilities or communities. Some of them are direct subsidies or scrapping premiums for the purchase of an e-scooter - this reduces the electric scooter costs for you even further. Would you like an example? In Regensburg, you can get up to 1,000 euros back when you buy your electric scooter. We have more information for you here. 
Driving license for your electric scooter In contrast to e-scooters, you need a valid driver's license for your electric scooter, i.e. a class B or class AM driver's license.
Insurance for electric scooters: What to consider? In short: Every e-scooter that drives faster than 6 km/h under its own power requires an independent liability insurance in Germany. This is mandatory if you want to participate in public traffic with your electric scooter. Therefore, you should take care of the appropriate insurance after your purchase of your unu electric scooter. The insurance must be renewed every year.  There are many different providers on the market, who offer not only liability insurance, but also partial and fully comprehensive insurance. The price of liability insurance for your e-scooter is around 40-80 euros. What covers the liability for you everything and whether an additional partial or even fully comprehensive insurance is worthwhile for you, we have broken down once in detail in our article on insurance for electric scooters.
Electric scooter registration What makes the purchase of an electric scooter particularly attractive: You do not need an extra registration. You do not have to pay vehicle tax, which further reduces the cost of your e-scooter. But: The aforementioned liability insurance for your e-scooter is sufficient, but without valid insurance you are not allowed on the road.
Your battery life with the electric scooter Of course, it always depends on the model. The battery life of an electric scooter can be very different. Depending on whether you have set on a high-quality model. A battery from unu, for example, will take you a full 50 kilometers on one battery charge. In seven hours, a battery is already fully charged again, in less than five hours you get to 70%.
